The Castle Rock Downtown Alliance had the opportunity to sit down with John Manka, the owner of 1 Stop Tire & Auto. Below are a few of our favorite questions we got to discuss with John.
Why did you choose Downtown/what attracted you to owning a business in Castle Rock?
Having a business downtown is great for someone getting their car serviced because they can walk to shops, restaurants, and Festival Park. That made it an easy choice of being Downtown.
Tell us the story/background of your business. How did you end up running a business in your industry?
I always had a love for classic cars, and I worked at automotive related businesses while in High School & College. After my engineering career, I was intrigued about having a small business and gravitated to a field for which I was familiar. That is why it is no surprise to see a lot of classic cars at 1 Stop.
Favorite thing about owning a small business?
Flexibility and the ability to interact with customers and friends are my favorite things about owning a small business.
Favorite place to visit in Downtown Castle Rock?
Festival Park and all the breweries, bars, and restaurants of course! But really favor all the Downtown events that happen throughout the year.
What’s something unique that people may not know about you or your business?
Though we are a locally owned business, 1 Stop Tire & Auto is a NAPA AutoCare Center which allows us to offer a NATIONWIDE 36/36 warranty on most repairs. That matters if you drive your vehicles out of town. Also, we are the only certified RepairPal facility in Castle Rock and all repairs & maintenance are recorded on CarFax. Having those services show up on your vehicle’s CarFax helps you monitor your maintenance as well as increasing its value when it’s time to sell.
What’s the easiest way customers can support your small business right now?
The most important thing you can do for your vehicle is get your car serviced when the manufacturer says to do it. Consider it as your doctor’s appointment for your vehicle. Regular check-ups will maximize your cars life while minimizing overall costs. It also makes sense to frequent the same shop so that they are familiar with its history much like going to a doctor. If you choose us as your shop, you can also help other local businesses while your car is being serviced. Just call ahead so that we can book you for your desired time.
